Google Tests Project Stream, Users Can Play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in Chrome
Google is trying to take a piece of the yet inexistent streaming market with Project Stream, by providing users with a way to play Assassin’s Creed Odyssey in the Chrome browser.
The idea that we can stream games, just like we do with movies, is an older one. Some companies tried it and some that still are. One of the most famous was OnLive, which made some waves during an E3 conference a while back.
Cloud virtualization sounds like something that can be done, but it turns out that it’s not that easy. Subsequently, OnLive struggled to survive and to find investors, only to be bought by Sony all the way back in 2015.
Google is getting into games
Google is a company that probably knows about virtualization technology more than anyone, and it has much deeper pockets. Now, the company revealed that it’s working on Project Stream, which sounds a lot like OnLive, on paper.
